Overview



Everyone forgets things sometimes. But do you ever feel like you can't keep track of simple things like acquaintances' names, your car keys, and the two things you needed to pick up on the way home? As America's population ages, more and more people are struggling with the fact that their memory and mental power are not that they used to be. Maybe you've tried "exercising" your mind, or maybe you've just started keeping better "to do" lists. But a proven way to improve your mind, memory and mood is to feed your brain the nutrients it needs to function at its peak performance level. Over the past few years, scientists have discovered dozens of new supplements that enhance and sharpen memory, intelligence, vision, and mental performance.

In Mind Boosters, one of the world's most respected nutritional experts examines the very latest research on these breakthrough brain nutrients, amino acids, herbs, and hormones. Along with a scientific and practical evaluation of their benefits and risks, Dr. Sahelian explains how to combine mind-boosting supplements to help patients with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, depression as well as those with normal age-related mental decline. People of all ages can benefit from the sensible, step-by-step programs tailored to the differing needs of the young, the middle aged and the elderly.

    Finally - objective and detailed information about natural supplements

    I've been searching the internet for good information about vitamins, herbs and other food supplements that might help improve my mood, energy and clarity of thought. However almost all the hits are at sites that sell these products, so I have to assume that their sales pitches are not unbiased sources of information. They don't spend much time talking about bad side effects, and they won't tell you 'hey this product doesn't really do anything but if you want to throw away your money, throw it our way'. Apparently, this book's author, Ray Sahelian, is a medical doctor not a salesman. He tries the supplements himself and reports their effects, if any. He provides scientific explanations of how the supplements work, and of brain chemistry in general. However it is written in a way that can be easily understood by those like me who have no medical training or knowledge.
